Dear Mark, Lynn, Eric, Leslie, Gretchen, and Curtis,
Sincere and loving sympathy to all of you and your family members on the loss of your precious mother. Mrs. Miner had a quiet, gentle, peaceful spirit that blessed so many of us who had the privilege of knowing her. I can honestly still hear her unique, affirming laugh. She and Mrs. Klingensmith were our wonderful role models for women in the workplace- mothers truly dedicated to their families and working outside the home, too! We know you will be sad and filled with sorrow in the minutes, hours, days, and months ahead. May God give you peace of heart and mind and comfort you at this time. Love, Tom and Maureen

I feel blessed that my final memories with Aunt Margie were seeing how surpised she was to receive so many of her father's paintings and how happy she was that her children could enjoy them. It's wonderful that you can share our artistic Regensburger heritage with future generations. God bless all of you. Sandy 'Regensburger' Metzler

I cherish my memories of my long time friend. We walked daily together, we both enjoyed movies,theater and art, our mutual “Therapy Club” friends and our Widows Group. Marge truly never said an unkind word about anyone. How lucky you all were to have her your Mom. Love and prayers, JoAnn Speaker
